The Dark Horses underwent a slight rebrand in 2019 when Marten felt the title “Dark Horses Companion” was better to describe the book.
It is produced in a more succinct format than before. Our usual features appear again but the Classic Previews, now called Classic Contenders, are produced in a more accessible note-style format.
The Dark Horses series of books, first produced in the 70s, are widely recognised and respect as the authoritative source of information about unexposed and unraced talent.
The Dark Horses Companion contains:
The Premier List – Marten’s select analysis of horses to follow
The Dark Horses – unexposed or unraced horses that have been brought to Marten’s attention
The Dark Handicappers – unexposed horses that may have been let in lightly
The Classic Contenders – Marten’s succinct appraisal of the candidates, some less obvious than others, for the first four Classics
